Celestron - CPC Deluxe 1100 HD Telescope - 11" EdgeHD on GoTo Alt-Az Mount
The CPC Deluxe 1100 HD is a supreme visual instrument or, with optional wedge and CCD cameras, as a
serious astrophotographer's tool!
Although large in aperture, with its conveniently located carrying handles and an optical tube weight, with
forks attached of 66 lbs., the Celestron CPC Deluxe 1100 HD is still portable enough to set up in your
backyard or take with you to your favorite dark sky location yet gives you a huge amount of aperture. The
CPC Deluxe feature Celestron's remarkable Edge HD optics. The Edge HD design is a modified SchmidtCassegrain which creates an extremely flat field of view, ideal for astrophotography.
The CPC Deluxe Mount ...
The Celestron CPC Deluxe mount uses an internal GPS receiver that automatically downloads the date and
time from orbiting satellites and pinpoints its exact location on Earth. This eliminates the need for you to
manually enter the date, time, longitude, and latitude. Once the internal GPS has established the telescope's
position, aligning the telescope is as easy as 1-2-3, thanks to Celestron's Sky-Align technology! Simply use
the CPC Deluxe hand control to manually point (slew) the telescope to three bright celestial objects. You do
not need to know the names of the stars — you may even pick the moon or bright planets! Celestron's
NexStar(R) software technology will model the night sky to determine the position of every star, planet and
celestial object above the horizon. Once your Celestron CPC telescope is aligned, the remote hand control
allows direct access to each of the celestial catalogs in its user-friendly database.
The Celestron CPC Deluxe database contains over 40,000 celestial objects including Messier objects and the
Caldwell Catalog, as well as NGC Galaxies, nebulae and planets. User-definable filter limits make navigating
through this expansive database quicker and easier. Filter Limits let you filter out objects that are outside of
your local horizon (ie, if trees or mountains were in the way). The Identify feature tells you what you're looking
at with your Celestron CPC Deluxe, but it can also be a very fun way to tour around the sky. Just point the
telescope up somewhere and ask it to identify Messier objects (for instance) and it will show you the 5 nearest
Messier objects to your position and let you GOTO them.
Celestron Edge HD Optics...
The EdgeHD is Celestron’s latest innovation that will surely be the system of choice for the serious astroimagers. The new Edge High Definition telescope series features an Aplanatic Schmidt optical system that
produces pinpoint star images all the way to the edge of the field. Some optical systems currently on the
market may produce coma free images. But there is a difference.... the optical difference. Not only is the
Celestron Edge coma free, but it also has a built in field flattener to ensure sharp focus all the way to the edge
of the field, producing true Astrograph quality images. This results in pinpoint, High Definition star images
throughout your astro photograph.
Many optical designs that advertise themselves as “astrograph” quality actually only produce pinpoint stars
across a curved focal plane. While this may be acceptable for visual observing, stars will appear out of focus
at the edge when used with a flat chip sensor of a digital camera. Edge HD optics produce a focal plane more
than three-times flatter than a standard Schmidt Cassegrain telescope and dramatically flatter than other
competing coma-free designs. This guarantees you visibly sharp stars across some of the largest CCD chips
available today.
